Though many celebrity interviews may seem unplanned or even unfiltered, most interviews are told to stick to publicist-approved questions or topics when questioning their subjects. David Letterman apparently didn’t get the memo.
When interviewing actress Lindsay Lohan, the famed late-night talk show host began bombarding her with questions related to her past struggles with substance abuse and her repeated trips to rehab. Lindsay had to awkwardly sit and try to handle the intense questions before telling the host, “we didn’t discuss this in the pre-interview.” So uncomfortable!
Marky Mark Missed the Mark With His Graham Norton Interview
As one of the most beloved talk show hosts in the UK, Graham Norton has interviewed multiple celebrities. None of that experience, however, could have prepared him for an inebriated Mark Wahlberg as a guest.
The boozed-up actor not only kept interrupting fellow guests but at one point actually sat on Graham’s lap and groped him! The host called the whole incident “annoying” but understood that his behavior was due to jet lag and having too many adult beverages. Hmmm…
Jimmy Kimmel’s Awkward Excuse
Who hasn't used a lame excuse to get out of going somewhere they didn’t want to go? While our little white lies wouldn’t get called out on national television, the same can’t be said about Jimmy Kimmel and Tyler Perry. It turns out that the director invited Jimmy to his big party — an event Jimmy apparently promised to attend but didn’t.
Viewers watched as the host tried miserably to come up with excuses as to why he was a no-show — excuses that were promptly called out by the party-throwing “Madea” star. Should’ve just RSVP’d “no” Jimmy!
Scarlett Johansson Refuses to Discuss Her Black Widow Wardrobe
When it comes to promoting a film, actors are often asked strange questions about their characters. But asking what her character Black Widow wears under her costume was a bit too much for actress Scarlett Johansson. An interviewer asked if she wore underwear while in costume as the Marvel character.
Annoyed, the actress said, "You're like the fifth person that's asked me that today," she then added, "What is going on? Since when do people start asking each other in interviews about their underwear?" She’s right though. Her costume, her business!
Justin’s Revealing Photos Shown by Ellen DeGeneres
Though they may live in the public eye, celebrities still deserve privacy. In 2015, paparazzi caught singer Justin Bieber in his birthday suit while vacationing in Bora Bora. The star thought those embarrassing pictures were a thing of the past.
Unfortunately while on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, she felt the need to not only say “let’s talk about the paparazzi shot in Bora Bora,” but she also projected the embarrassing images on a huge screen to her audience and millions of viewers. Deeply inappropriate! Justin looked visibly uncomfortable.
